Milky Bar is a resort with a lot going for it. A great beach location, beautiful bamboo all over the grounds, a great restaurant, good pool & nice massage.
We were in one of the Villas - large A-shaped structures that offer plenty of space, but the furnishings are a bit uncomfortable with brick blockwork making the bases for seating and beds. Due to the A-shape frame of the roof you can't sit up in bed & rest your back - not a major issue but a bit inconvenient.
The shower is not good & needs upgrading.
The other concern was the amount of maintenance work taking place on site near guests who were trying to relax by the beach & pool. For example scaffold being put up & electrical tools being used a few yards from guests - not ideal.

With a bit more thought and attention to detail Milky Bar could go from being a good value option, to excellent.

We stayed in the cheapest rooms they have which were wooden huts and pretty rough around the edges - quite expensive for what you get. The beach isn’t really suitable for sunbathing and swimming which we were disappointed by. The food in the restaurant however was great and the staff there were very friendly.

Why are everyone’s reviews so emotional and subjective? Put that stuff in your journal; people need info, not anecdotes! :)

What it is: a sleepy hotel down a bamboo lane off the main highway. Rooms range from a rustic little bungalow right on the water (like, the front porch might flood on extra high tides, which happened to us) to large family structures set back near the pool and restaurant, and everything in between. Google image search the place for a map of the rooms. Restaurant is expensive by Thai standards, but incredibly affordable by western standards: $13 USD for the best damn steak or fish you’ve ever had in your life, freshly chosen and grilled, with sides and drinks. Adjacent to the restaurant is another bar with a pool table. Grounds are all sand, with little areas to relax all around. Depending on tides (like many Thai beaches) the water is either feet away or hundreds of meters. Who cares. Enjoy the pool. Have a Chang.

What it isn’t: it’s not super luxury, and it’s not super cheap. It’s right in the middle. Thai people are the nicest people on the planet, so if there’s an issue with the staff, it’s an issue with yourself. YOURE NOT AT HOME. OR THE FOUR SEASONS. relax. You’re on vacation. It’ll be ok. They’re doing their best. Enjoy the pool. Have a Chang.

Extra info: THERE IS A 7-eleven ON THE CORNER. 2 min walk. Thailand hack: buy your beers and snacks there and take them to your room / beach / wherever. Because you can! If you want action / music / young people doing dumb things - you can walk to the big complex just east (I forget the name), or jump in one of those techno taxis and go to the full moon party a short ride away. Short cab ride / long walk to Thong Sala for the night market and ferry. Beautiful mountain top Buddhist temple short hike away. And whatever you do: DONT go to Two Rocks bar nextdoor to milky bay. It’s the most peaceful, positive, chill, hidden gem of a reggae bar on Ko phangan, and if you go there you will have to tell someone (like I just did) and then everyone will go there. Ok fine. Just go there. Rastafari!

Editor’s note: I only gave it 4 out of 5 because I need my 5s to mean something. 4 is super good. Don’t hate Milky, hate the bay.

...
You’re thinking about a trip to Thailand: DO IT!
You’ve been to Thailand: you get it.
You’re going to Thailand: have fun! YOURE IN THAILAND.

My wife and I with 8 of our other friends stayed at the Milky Bay Resort. We really had an amazing time. The staff were very friendly and easy to get along with. When it came to the full moon party, the resort organized us transport to and from the venue. Our room was fantastic, a real parodies experience. I recommend Milky Bay Resort to all.

Booked for 13 nights at the resort. Within 2 days a massive waterleak from the roof occured (raining season). Perfectly solved by the staff, they changed us from a studio to a villa. A resort with a nice swimmingpool, a good restaurant and very clean accomodation!

Thank you for your review. Yes Thailand can have very heavy downpours in rainy season. I am happy to hear that you were quickly accommodated and moved to another room. We hope we will see you back again in beautiful Thailand.
